One of the main purposes of granting independence to regulatory agencies is to give certainty to investors, particularly in sectors that require large amounts of capital to be recovered after many years, such as the energy industry. In the latest Institute of the Americas policy brief and report, Non-Resident Fellow Francisco Salazaranalyzes the independence of regulators in Chile, Peru and Mexico and overlays the ease of doing business in each country for a unique assessment of three major energy markets in Latin America. These countries were selected by the criteria that they all have signed the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade accord, or, TPP. Salazar’s analysis uses what is called the Gilardi Index, a specific measurement of formal independence of regulators, and then it overlays the results with other indicators of the investment environment in each country.

Join us for a webinar presentation of the results of the report “Assessing the Independence of Energy Regulators in Chile, Peru and Mexico” with Francisco Xavier Salazar, the Institute of the Americas Regional Energy Integration Non-Resident Fellow. The webinar will be held Thursday, August 25 at 10:00am San Diego (11am Mexico City; GMT/UTC – 8 hours).
Salazar’s formal presentation will be followed by a live Q&A session with the audience.
